    Huckabee is right. Conervatives win elections when they stand strong on conservative values. If we are wiling to compromise those values that it becomes nothing more than just about winning elections. Boehner and his ilk have fogotten that. They all need to go.

    Like others, I am a conservative independent. I vote for whom I feel is going to be the best possible person in the job. Which is why I didn't vote Obama in 08 or 12.

    As for Huckabee, this is a decision only he can make, but I would support him leaving the GOP because they are no different the DNC. They are both owned and operated by big business; rich lobbyist; and the polls.

    No one in Washington is interested in serving the will of the people, and I mean the majority of the people, because if they cared about the majority, a lot of things happening in DC; around this world; and in America would not be swept under the rug of politics as usual.

    Like he has a chance. It doesn't matter were he goes or what he does, not getting elected president.

    This is why I am a libertarian. The people in Washington only seek to accumulate power and wealth, and have no time to concern themselves with upholding and defending the Constitution or the people they are supposed to represent. Name the last war that was fought to defend the Constitution? It is easy for people to complain about Obama, but he is just the head of the disease.

    I have heard more news today about the comments Paltrow made, who is completely irrelevant, than I have heard about the Islamic State. Americans are simply tied up too much in self and in Hollywood then anything that is real.
